Events > TEDxKrakówLive 2011

Usually, we have to wait until individual TED Talks are released on, but on 13 July 2011 TEDxKraków hosted TEDxKrakówLive, a live simulcast of the second day of TEDGlobal. This was the first time that TEDGlobal could be viewed in real time in Poland and it was a unique opportunity to experience the rollercoaster that is TED!

About TEDGlobal 2011:

In 2011 TEDGlobal asked the big questions... What is life? And how can it be better lived? It was a journey of tantalizing mystery and thrilling possibilities that took place over four days, in the energizing city of Edinburgh. The 50 or so speakers and performers from all over the world looked at who we are, what we do, and how we relate to each other and to other living organisms. They analyzed the resources, technologies and skills that make life possible and keep it going - and the many things that make it interesting, enjoyable and worthwhile. In other words, it was an exhilarating exploration of themes that are basic to our humanity, and those that threaten it.
